I created this 1950's vintage tea party back in Nov 2010, most of my items were handmade or 2nd hand as I did not have a large budget to work with. After doing some initial sketches in my ideas book I chose pink, white and yellow as my colour scheme as I fell in love with the fabric Verna Mosquera ROSES AND HYDRANGEAS Lemon that I saw on Etsy. I ordered several yards along with some co-ordinating fabrics so I could make my ruffle table cloth, cover and old chair and do other crafty items for the birthday party. A couple of weeks before the party I started collecting all the chairs for the party, all were bought 2nd hand from Ebay some for only $5!! Bargain! I didn't touch them as I liked the shabby chic mixed feel the chairs evoked. My eldest daughter Anya and I made the doily bunting from cheap white dollar shop doilies ($2 for 72 various sized doilies) hand dyed and then stapled onto some twine, easy peasy, idea from Martha Stewart

Cupcakes_thumb Omgosh... do you live in California!? This is SO adorable! Where did you get those cupcake papers at? I love this idea so much but it seems like it would be so much work. Is the pink material, thats a chair cousin? I looooooove it so much! I want to do that too! =)

Cupcakes_thumb Hi Robin, I live on the other side of the planet, in Australia ;-) sorry........ The cupcake wrappers are from "The cupcake wrapper co" http://www.thecupcakewrapperco.bigcartel.com/product/cupcake-wrappers-pink-baroque don't forget you can buy pre-made fondant flowers from your local baking supply shop if you don't want to make them yourself. The pink fabric is left over Tanya Whelan fabric that I stapled to my chair pad since the old one was old and frayed. Just use a staple gun from your local hardware store.
